Quotes from

Pacer Burton: All Ma and me ever got from Whites is mean looks and don't get uppish with us.
Roslyn Pierce: Oh, that's not true.
Pacer Burton: You were the worst. You made me feel it the worst. When I was little I liked you a lot. You were the only girl I ever liked a whole lot. But ever since you've been old enough to know, you never looked at me once without saying something in the back of your head. "He's Kiowa. Clint's all right, but watch out for Pacer."


Pacer Burton: [as Pacer and Clint ride into town] You heard what pa said. No horsing around with Ros.
Clint Burton: Now, just a minute. What do you mean "horsing around"?
Pacer Burton: Well, ain't that what you're doing with her?
Clint Burton: No, it ain't.
Pacer Burton: You mean, you mean it?
Clint Burton: And what if I do?
Pacer Burton: With a gal that wears britches?
Clint Burton: What's wrong with a gal that wears britches?
Pacer Burton: Well, ain't nothing wrong, but, uh, on second thought, you might look pretty good with skirts on.
[Clint laughs]


One Indian: Kiowa Pacer. Is it true, earth, round like ball, white man live on all sides?
Pacer Burton: That is true.
Another Indian: Tell me, why men on bottom not fall off?
Pacer Burton: I've never been there. Maybe they do.
[they all laugh]

Facts about

Elvis Presley had another song in the film, "Summer Kisses, Winter Tears", which was cut after preview audiences laughed at the staging (Elvis singing to the Indians around a campfire, accompanied by a chief on war drums). A studio version of the tune was recorded, but the original "Indian" version was only resurrected recently on the German "Elvis: Double Features" CD collection.
In May 1958 The Hollywood Reporter wrote that Nunnally Johnson had been slated to write, direct and produce the film. During the same month, Daily Variety wrote that Johnson wanted Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra to play the brothers. Eventually Johnson only worked as a writer on the film.
A song called "Britches" was recorded for the movie, It was meant that Elvis Presley would sing it while riding his horse to the crossing together with his brother Clint. Elvis, however, didn't want to perform a song while riding because it would look too dumb.
